SCHAUMBURG, ILL. (PRWEB) APRIL 27, 2020
The New York Times reported on Friday, Apr. 17, 2020 that 20% of all COVID-19 virus deaths were related to nursing homes. In addition, The New York Times review of COVID-19 cases revealed an astonishing 36,500 nursing home residents and staff contracted the virus. The MyHealthCoach app has been a game-changing ally in the hands of Healthcare workers who have been stretched to their limits in their efforts to halt the spread of infection and to meet the increased demands of caring for vulnerable patients within facilities and in surrounding communities.
Widespread reports of staffing shortages at healthcare facilities caused by workers falling ill or being forced to quarantine at home have created increased opportunities for off-site physicians and other remote clinicians to step up to fill gaps for residents and patients in need of medical attention via telemedicine technologies. The MyHealthCoach app’s innovative design simplifies team-centric workflow, enabling quick and easy video telemedicine consults and text-based communication between caregivers and patients. In addition, MyHealthCoach can be a powerful tool for rounding clinicians— such as attending physicians, to sustain their practice via safe and efficient “virtual rounds” to patients and residents in a wide range of healthcare facilities.
“We have been staying extra close to our customers amidst this formidable crisis. Each day, we hear countless stories of the extraordinary challenges our post-acute partners face,” said Mike Diamond, Telemedicine Solutions CEO. “We have used the most battle-tested technology to ensure that MyHealthCoach is the right telemedicine platform for remote care delivery. It gives teams easy-to-use dashboards that coordinate patient communication and video consults in record time —no matter the location.”
